… the shadows… that chase the light…
Peter Hunter


… the shadows… that chase the light…
follow the sun… another dawn..
… survival for another day… a few hours perhaps to contemplate… think
believe…

Perhaps another sunset…
survival for a few hours at least…
… another grasp at tentative mortality…
legend?

It's our nature… this desperation to survive…
perhaps not to walk the water…
… until all are free…
some hope…
some dream…
… some fantasy…

It's our nature… this desperation to survive…
